As you read this, at present, you should know that there are only seemingly disconnected anecdotal dots that are starting to connect. However, if the dots do fully connect, we may not know until well after the November 2nd election if, in fact, America's democratic election process will have become the victim of the biggest fraud in our nation's history. What's worse, with early voting beginning this week in many states, it may already be too late to do anything about it."
